MyThredbo Smart Gates Are In

Thredbo have taken a big leap forward for 2011 introducing MyThredbo. The jist of it all is a smart card system which not only gives you lift access around the mountain but soon much more. Today Thredbo shows an important step in the path towards achieving all this with their smart gates.
